What is pipe lining?

Pipe lining is also known as a cured-in-place pipe or CIPP. Pipe lining or relining is a method to repair broken pipes of various degrees. The repairing is done from the interior of the wall without digging further. In other words, it means building a tougher new pipe from the inside of the existing damaged one. This service facilitates the better flow of sewage and permanently seals off cracks or broken parts. The portion of the pipe which is relined has been sealed completely beneath the rest of the previous pipe, which stops leakage and provides strength to the pipeline.

New Drain Lining

The following steps are the process required for Drain lining-

1. Drain Inspection

The first process of pipe lining is mapping your drainage system through a CCTV inspection. The CCTV inspection would let the technicians have a look at the inside of your drainage system. The camera will assess the plumbing system there to find any signs of breakage and pipe clogging. It will also measure the size of the break and blockage for better assessment. The camera will also tell us the location and position of these obstacles so engineers can deal with them effectively.

2. Build pipe lining and bladder

The second step is to work on the data that we have gathered. Now, as we have goth the measurement we make a customer-approved pipeline. Along with the line we build an inflatable bladder to fit the precise requirements of the pipe. In the end, we ensure all the bends and junctions of the pipe and inflatable bladder are well-matched.

3. Pipe lining installation

When the relined portion of the pipe is fully prepared, the felt lining has been washed in epoxy coating and inserted the uninflated bladder into the pipe liner. We draw the pipe lining into place by leveraging existing entry points to previous pipes as well as ropes that are securely attached to each end of the liner. We align it with a highly specialised drain camera to ensure it’s in the right place. The bladder is then inflated with air, which blows out the felt lining and seals it to the existing pipelines, resulting in a new pipe that is free of breaks and cracks. The bladder is kept inflated until the resin hardens and solidifies into a solid, tough pipe. The bladder is then deflated and pulled out of the pipe, leaving a brand-new, tough, and watertight pipe.

After your pipe has been relined, we use our CCTV drain inspection to ensure that everything has been properly installed and secured.

How do I know if my drain needs repair?

It is always favourable to diagnose a problem early on so that it can be easily solved by professionals. If you have doubts or suspicions about a drain blockage in your home, look for the following signs.

  • Slow flow of the wastewater in the sink, bath or washroom. Sometimes there is a complete blockage.
  • A peculiar foul stench lingers in your home.

Why is drain lining necessary?

For years now, homeowners and building owners rely on the dated way of fixing pipes. This dated process includes digging holes and attaching newer pipes to your drainage system. This dated way of fixing pipes can be costly and time-consuming.
Considering these problems, pipe lining is better suited to fixing your drainage method. They aren’t costly, the process doesn’t need messy digging, and the process overall is environment-friendly. Pipe lining isn’t so new. In 1980, the U.S. Navy’s Aircraft Carriers’ collection already used epoxy coating to hold their pipe systems together.
Today, pipe-lining technology is one of the newest and most efficient drainage solutions that you can use for your own home or building. Pipe lining protects your pipes from lead leaching, debris build-up, corrosion, leaks, root intrusion, and more.
Most importantly, pipe liners protect the water or any contents that pass through the pipes. Drain liners protect the water from getting contaminated by fungus, metal, and the like. This, in turn, protects your family’s tap water and health overall. With this, tap water is not only rehabilitated, but future fixings will be way easier and way ahead than expected.

How long will the pipelining replacement last?

We examine our lining raw materials for at least a thousand hours to verify that they meet company commissions’ guidelines. Our relining work has a fifty-year design life, but due to our exceptional safety measures, our linings have a life span of almost a hundred years.
